Complex Sign Project for Temple Emanu-El

Temple Emanu-El in Providence RI was planning a renovation project to accommodate its growing congregation. They envisioned custom donor plaques to show the deep appreciation for the support provided by the community.

As part of the renovation, the original exterior wall would be taken down to expand the space–and the congregation wanted to replicate the look of the original exterior wall in the new interior area.

Zebra Visuals was brought in at the very beginning of the project to collaborate with the designer, architect, and fine artist to ensure their vision was brought to life.

Large, complex sign project? No problem.

For this client, we handled the project management over an eight-month period and coordinated all the logistics and parties involved. We're fortunate to work with experts across many disciplines!

This project had several moving parts and considerations. Our robust sign design process ensured everything went smoothly at every step of the way.

  • Recommended sizes for the panels and wall graphics that would be appropriate for the space.
  • Provided recommendations to the architect regarding wall construction to properly support installation of the planned panels.
  • Supplied detailed illustrations and visual mockups to scale, which allowed the client to see exactly what the finished installation would look like.
  • Commissioned a fine artist to create custom panels to bring the donor wall to life with color as mirror windows in the Temple.
  • Coordinated fabrication and installed the dimensional lettering, panels, and vinyl graphics.

The "stone" wall in this photo is actually a faux finish, applied to look like the original wall!

This detail is subtle but indicative of the level of care and attention to detail that went into the project.

This project encompassed several sign materials. It was critical that they worked seamlessly together to create a unified and complementary final visual impact.
